Gaza flotilla passengers remain violent until the end

Thursday, June 03, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff  

Israel this week deported nearly all of the 600 activists aboard the seized Gaza "aid" vessels captured on Monday. Some of the activists were determined to exercise violence against Israel until the very last moment possible.

Israeli prison officials told Ynet that 13 female European activists were extremely hostile while being bussed to the airport. Once they arrived, the female activists violently attacked one of the guards, slapping, scratching and kicking him until a team of nearby police officers brought them under control.

The guard said he was surprised by the activists' behavior considering they had been treated so well since being detained in Israel.

A Turkish Red Cross worker who was at the airport to receive wounded Turkish citizens confirmed that Israel had provided professional and considerate care to those arrested aboard the ships.
